There are no entry requirements at all for our beginners courses – they are designed for complete novices. So whether you’ve danced before but are very rusty, or you’ve never danced at all – these courses are perfect for you!

Which beginners dance courses are available at Danceworks Devon?

We currently have two 5-week courses to choose from (one latin beginners and one ballroom beginners). You can choose to learn latin or ballroom, or both.

Why learn to dance?

According to the Open Access Government website, the benefits of dancing are huge. Regular dancing is great for losing weight, maintaining strong bones, improving posture and muscle strength, increasing balance and co-ordination, and also for beating stress. There’s also evidence that regular dancing can improve both heart health and mental health in older people.

There’s never been a better time to learn to dance. Our beginner’s courses fill up fast and numbers are strictly limited, so please contact us to book your place.

You can also buy online here; just remember you will need to add 2 items to your basket for a couple.

Not sure what to expect? Why not try a Taster Evening before you buy?

If you would like to sample what we offer before signing up for a course, we are offering a free taster evening in January, for complete beginners only. It’s on Thursday 11th January 2024, from 7.30 pm to 9.30 pm. We’ll cover some latin dances and a bit of ballroom too, so that you can get an idea of what our dance classes are like. It will be a fun and friendly evening; everyone’s welcome, and there’s no need to book – just turn up.

Beginners drop-in dance classes

We are also running a drop-in class for beginners every Tuesday evening from 7:15 – 8:15pm. These sessions will suit those that cannot commit to a regular class, or those who wish to practice their steps in between classes to consolidate their learning. The cost of a drop-in session is £24 per couple.
